    Default SotD: Friday 3rd May, '13

    Good Morning Everyone,

    TGIF!!! Very much looking forward to the long May Day weekend.



    Reaching for this always has me thinking of: 1) Larimar, who introduced me to the scent via a sample, and 2) Arwen_Elf, who has long sung its praises. Mr. Rodgers is a fan too, I believe.

    Have a great Friday, all.

    Morning all! In synch with the mood-lifting Eau Ressourcante
    by Clarins. Gorgeous combination of basil, lemon, iris, benzoin and cedar
    keeping it natural and simple. I love to wear this on hot summer days or after a
    bath/shower to relax me and make me feel I can cope with anything.

    Hello everyone, SOTD is Worth Courtesan


    Notes include cinnamon, cardamom, clove, pineapple, red berries, bergamot, orange blossom, magnolia, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, peach, caramel, raspberry, chocolate, cocoa beans, amber, vanilla, musk


    It may sound OTT, but in the hands of Pierre Bourdon it's a well-composed oriental where sweet fruits and flowers are reined in by dusty-dry cocoa and spice (I get almost all cardamom)




    Happy Friday, all.

    Good morning everyone! I'm a crazy woman trying to tie up all my loose ends before I leave in a week. There are too many, I'm not sure I can get them all... I'm hoping this weekend to make a dent in my lists.

    Quarry, you need to teach a class in loving yourself and loving your life.

    I'm testing Jo Malone's Wild Fig & Cassis today. Oh my goodness is this green, green, chop up a fig tree, green. When I first put it on I was a little put off, but it's mellowing a bit. It's no longer punching me in the nose and I'm starting to warm to it.

    Hope everyone is having a warmer, sunnier day today.

    In synch today with Geir. Seems to have gradually declined in popularity here on BN, but still always hits the spot for me and worthy of a permanent place in the wardrobe.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Happy Friday, everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day shaping up outside. Planning to check on all my perennials today to see if anything is starting to come up. There hasn't been anything so far, too cold. Can't wait for the lily of the valley and the irises to come up.

    Hi all,

    Well it's been a long, tough week, but finally it's over, and..... TGIF!!!! Been feeling rather feverish & shaky at work today, & still sneezing & sniffling, but l am now collapsed on the sofa with no intention of going anywhere until tomorrow night. Let's hope the beautiful weather will hang around for Sunday, at least!

    Poor Mr. Twolf! Hope he doesn't come down with it as badly as Mrs. You two deserve a break!

    Synced in Jasminora today, just back from seeing the annual live butterfly display at our botanical conservatory. So beautiful but I was aggravated to see not only children but also adults touching and grabbing the butterflies' wings. Very bad news for the little beauties when this happens. We're even reminded not to touch by the caretakers. Some people just don't belong out in public, was very sad to see this behavior.

    But on a happier note, spring seems to have finally found Indiana, yay! Hugs to everyone!

    Edit: Oops, where is my mind?! Meant to send healing hugs to teardrop! Sounds like you need to tuck in for a long rest, dear sweetie.

    Be kind to yourself this weekend, (((Teardrop))). You deserve good rest and TLC

    Cello and Jon, I wish I could join you right now in wine o'clock, but I have a ways to go yet ...

    The snow's all melted and the sun is sort of out today, but it's still cold and windy. More like early March than May.

    Quarry, I'm envious. One of these days, yes, I'll find a way to dig in the dirt again. I miss my shrubs and trees.

    Jon Rodgers, my oldest daughter was at the swimming pool and a bird went overhead; she said "ooh look, a hawk!".
    Her friend replies "no, that's a kite.".

    "Yes, a bird. A KITE."

    We have cooper hawks here (I call them the 'city hawks') and osprey, the seahawks, and kestrels, those are gorgeous. And all sorts of herons and egrets and ibis-es wandering around looking for lizards.

    I'm wearing something sprayed from a mystery decant I've had for ages. I have no idea what it is. Whenever I sniffed the spray nozzle in passing it seemed citrusy/neroli, which always lifts my mood so I thought it would be good for today's sync. When I sprayed it I got more petitgrain or bigarade than lush neroli. I'm not good at id'ing notes, but I think I get rose, iris and and a big clove blast, though I didn't smell clove before spraying on my skin. I have no idea what I'm wearing. I'm enjoying it anyway. It's a posh smelling eau de cologne type fragrance.

    Today I've been smelling fabulous whilst wearing vintage KL whilst being the muscle for forcing someone out of a friend's flat.

    One of my friends found out earlier in the week that her lodger has spent the last few months gradually emptying all of her savings accounts, to the tune of about £9000. He has been away on holiday for the last week so we had time to cancel all of her cards, close down access to all of her accounts and make a plan for how to secure her flat, get hold of him on his return and get him into a police station without being rumbled and him scarpering. Cue child locks on the car doors and dumping him in the police station car park with enough friends around to make sure that he didn't try to weasel out of going in the door.

    It's all a bit crap and barring a miracle, my friend has lost all of her savings with very little chance to force him to cough up any of it, but at least she can start again from now with her flat safe and can sleep knowing that the locks have been changed.

    I'm knackered now (but I do smell good).

    My original intentions of wearing Jasmin de Nuit this evening went out of the window when I made out like a bandit with a bagful, yes bagful, of Hanae Mori fragrances and related bath products. I was seriously worried for the plastic bag to burst and dump the contents on the concrete while I was carrying it to the car. Our Dillards not only halved the price but took additional 30 percent off on top of that. Now, gourmands and I don't mix, but lately I developed a sweet tooth for something delicious, cheerful, and carefree. So I guess I am still in synch with Hanae Mori N 1.

    I'm still up, having just updated records to take with me if I have to take Mom to the ER Saturday.

    She's had leg swelling increasing over the course of the week, and tonight the nurse I called to look at her thought she might be developing cellulitis in her left leg, which is now redder, warmer and somewhat shiny.

    Hubby will drive our daughter to school to take the SAT, and I'll be up early to check on Mom, talk to the day nurse-- and we'll take it from there depending on how things seem. It's going to be a short night, and will be followed by a long day, I think.
